Madness! Makes no sense after what he's done for them, was surely the best man to get them promoted again next year?
Agreed.

Who you reckon to next manager? Surely someone from a BAME background like Barnes or Ince? Maybe Sol Campbell? Scandalous that only 5% of EPL managers are from BAME backgrounds.

I really hope this is Wilder leaving voluntarily. Tactically he's the most capable boss since Clough.

Even Klopp has a relegation on his CV.

Brilliant manager and one I would have begged to stay regardless of this season.

Let's just hope they give managers from BAME backgrounds a look in, otherwise the kneeling won't have changed anything!
Why should they give managers from BAME backgrounds a chance? If they're not good enough it's tough. Removed

Leftie rubbish. Just get the best person for the job should always be the only consideration. The self-promoting, 'brand' enhancing, social media opportunity, US copying kneeling, racist knee taking has no place here. The UK is not the US no matter how much the hard of thinking want it to be.

Absolutely gutted and that’s from a Gunners fan. A lot to be said about longevity of a manager, as shown by Dyche at Burnley and for us Wenger.

I hope the board haven’t pushed him out and this was his own decision, because we need more versions of Chris Wilder’s in football! Good luck in future endeavours!

The point that Alex1817 rightly made was that it's possible for football fans to think beyond their own clubs and to care about the wider sport. Clearly not all fans though, Lovell.

Well if you actually read his post he was referring to managers and longevity, I'm a Gunner too (hope that upsets you too- Spurs fan? Liverpool fan? lol), and that is pertinent to the point. I don't think you really understand football really do you- there is an HYS thread somewhere on knitting I'm sure- you'd enjoy that more I think.

It matters who he supports because it's highlighting how even rival fans can recognise how good a manager Wilder is and just how well he's done. He's also a really likeable manager, honest and not full of hot air like many these days.

I echo Alex's sentiment and also happen to be an Arsenal fan.

The reason people say who they support first, is to show that while we all have our own tribes, it's football we all love....some of us have been through the mill ( I'm a Leeds fan ) and so we know exactly what others are going through. Hate the Blades when they play us, but got a lot of friends that are Blades.

What makes him the best man to get them promoted?

Their run of form has been an absolute disaster going back to December 2019. Yes, 2019. If he could get the players to respond any more, they would have by now.

People are so thick. A manager reaches his expiry date no matter the job and Wilder is long past his.

Well said. They've picked up a couple of unlikely wins along the way given their start, but there's every chance he'd have taken them down to League One. Look at Wolves, Sunderland as examples - no guarantee the hangover will clear and that they'll do a Norwich

If you want to pretend this guy is a good manager then go ahead.

But pretending is only pretending. Reality is reality.

And the reality is Chris Wilder belongs in League One.

I'm sure Everton, West Ham, Spurs fans etc are gutted they never appointed him whenever the media were telling them to back in 2019 lol!!!

Bad, bad call. Did miracles with a fairly weak squad. Have a feeling the owners were trying to undermine him and he had enough, big shame for my club. Look at the Norwich continuity and the reaped rewards.
Look at the amount of money Delia has pocketed from promotions/relegations. She has definitely reaped the rewards, the club hasn’t though. Looks like another £160 million coming her way, I wonder how much will be invested in the team. Last time they got promoted they spent less than £1 million. That level of financial fraud should be investigated. They even furloughed staff last year! Removed

Having been badly in debt the club's plan is to run sustainably and be self funded. So unusually Norwich posted a £2m profit in 2020 despite COVID and relegation. But I guess you find it more fun to imagine that all the players and staff work for free and Delia pockets it all.

As an actual Norwich fan, I'm really pleased that my club dont go out and spent all our money on players like Brewster. Season after season we see clubs spending millions on very average, unproven players. I'm very happy that my club is being run responsibly. We might end up in League 1, but at least I will still have a club to support.

Disgusting comment....I doubt that Delia has taken ANYTHING from the football club. Last season's lack of investment was down to having to repay the profligacy from when NCFC did push to boat out in order to try and stay in the PL under Alex Neil. Next season we'll be back, and with greater investment than 2 years ago, and a stronger squad, will have a much greater chance of survival. O T B C

You obviously have little knowledge of both the finances in football and, in particular, at Norwich City.

The club publish their financial statement every single year, it's very clear where the money goes.

yeah,shocking ,I mean they just didn't have any choice,there just wasn't the work out there for ball boys was there and had no choice but to furlong them,but you're right with the investment but NCFC DON'T owe a scooby to anyone so with all due respect I think all round they are a well managed club an we know that we are a selling club an Deliahs there for us,shes not a bad ole bird

Delia hasnt pocketed the cash, Norwich has put itself in a stable financial position by developing youth, signing them on long-term contracts then calling the shots when selling players on. Delia criticism is not relevant to Wilder leaving the Blades.

I doubt Sheffield United will be in a similar position next season relying on parachute payments to cover their unsuccessful large transfer fees

This is because certain cultures don't get the game. Look on Facebook at certain cultures commenting. Sorry but the surname of the owner says it all.

The only owner Wolves have had from that culture was in the 80s and they destroyed us. Blades don't let these ruin you too. Get rid of this guy as they only understand grooming gangs.

In having his say from the south east, he ought to be courteous enough to remember that supporters of two proud Sheffield clubs (129 years in the top flight: 66 Owls and 63 Blades, including this one) are 'united' (no pun intended) in their desire to have their name outlined correctly. We wouldn't congratulate Pep for Manchester winning the league would we?
